Corrupt System files
I really hope that someone can help. When I turn on my soft modded wii I get a message which states that my system files are corrupt. I had a read through the forums and checked that I do have priiloader installed and I could get into that menu. When I try to access the homebrew channel it says that it cant and that it may not be installed.
It definately was, prior to the corruption. It is a 4.1 pal console.
Please can someone tell me if there is anyway to save this or if not, will I be able to return it. I have had it less than 6 months.
Thanks to all who try to help.

You wont be able to return it to N as you have prob voided the warranty because you have Soft Modded.
Try looking/posting in the bricked section of the forum BRICKED Wii Issues ONLY.....
So you can get to the prilloader menu ok?
Did this happen after a priiloader install?
what happens if you change the system ios to 36 and try and load system menu?
Hi there, yes that is right I can get into the priiloader menu. I had installed cios rev 19, that seemed to take and then I installed a wad for config usb loader. It all seemed to take with no errors but as soon as I restarted i got the message stating my system files were corrupt. You could not read the letters properly but this seems to be a common thing with this message. I cant get into the homebrew channel from there unfortunately.
How do I change the system ios to 36. Sorry I worked that out from the system menu settings. I dont have an ios 36.
I stress the wii worked perfect before I did this. It booted games from usb gx with no problems.

can you load a .dol file from priiloader? then we can run wad manager and uninstall that CFG USB Loader wad
For some reason my system ios was at 60. I changed it to 249. Then it worked. Did I do something wrong to put it at 60 in first place. Just keen to avoid it again. Thank you so much for your help.
system ios is supposed to be 60 for 4.1
sounds like your wii isnt modded properly if it doesnt boot unless you select 249
like bad Ad84 say's ios60 is your system ios - changing that ios is only a workaround so you can undo what you did, that caused your fault.
I's start with unistalling the last wad you installed.
worse case you will need to reinstall your 4.1 system menu.
Thanks for this. Are there any tutorials for doing this? I checked the system and it is 4.1E. Bearing in mind I thought I was holding a £160 brick I am happy with this workaround. All my games work so I have to thank god for that. I really appreciate the support and advice that you have both provided. Without you pushing me along I could easily have taken a hammer to it. Many many thanks.
Did you try to uninstall the CFG USB Loader wad? - Then return system ios back to 60 in priiloader and see if it works?
If not you'll have to re-install your system menu
